Dynamic Structures is renowned for building the largest astronomical telescopes. This experience has triggered an interest in telescope mirror technology.
Dynamic Optics is developing advanced mirror-polishing technology that has the potential to radically reshape the observatory telescope industry.
Larger mirrors are critical to the advancement of astronomy and astrophysics. However, bigger mirrors are thicker and heavier, dramatically limiting the humankind’s ability to create larger observatories.
Dynamic Optics is pioneering the patented HyDRA robotic mirror polishing technology which uses a proprietary tool and a six axis robot to produce precision optical surfaces. This new technology creates highly accurate mirror surfaces that are far thinner than conventional polishing methods.
The company also creates specialized light-weight mirror ‘blanks’ through spin casting and pressure moulding ideal for telescopes, scanners, and airborne optical systems.
